We have asked Haas-sponsored clubs to tell us about the events they are holding each academic year. Below is a post received by Nika Saki on behalf of the Undergraduate Marketing Association (UMA).
On Wednesday, November 17, 2010 the Undergraduate Marketing Association hosted Get Intern-Connected. At this campus-wide event, a wide range of companies, including NBC, Fox, Merrill Lynch, Sephora, Pepsi, and Kaiser Permanente, were each represented by past interns. Students had the opportunity to speak with past interns about their experiences. This allowed them the opportunity to research potential internship paths – hearing both the pros and cons. Further, the past interns detailed the application process and gave advice based on their experiences. This event was very successful and we plan to continue hosting Get Intern-Connected every semester.
